Hydrafacial vs. Microneedling

Hydrafacial and Microneedling are some of the most famous skin treatments out there. Both are equally remarkable in treating different skin conditions and problems. However, both Hydrafacial and Microneedling are different special treatments that can only accommodate and address certain problems. Not only that, they cannot be simultaneously taken as they might produce complications in your skin. And so, choosing the right treatment for you to take is only essential. 



This famous treatment is unique because it involves three different stages of treatments. First, there is cleansing and exfoliating to remove old and dead skin. Second, impurities are extracted through gentle suction. Third, serums are infused into the skin to protect and improve the skin through antioxidants and peptides. What makes it even more special is that these three stages, after completion, have zero downtime. 


Advantages of Hydrafacial:

  • Relaxes the skin
  • Balances the skin tone
  • Brightens the skin
  • Smoothes and softens the texture of your skin
  • Minimizes and reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Eliminates dark spots 



Microneedling, on the other hand, is popular because of its ability to trigger collagen production. While there is little pain involved in the treatment since it uses micro needles to puncture the skin, it is still opted by many people because of its effectiveness and long-lasting results. Additionally, it is considered as a progressive treatment as sessions go by, your skin becomes more and more radiant and youthful as it improves more and more. 


Advantages of Microneedling:

  • Improves skin quality
  • Increases collagen production
  • Increases elastin production
  • Minimizes and reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces appearance of acne scars and stretch marks
  • Eliminates dark spots and discoloration
